About this title:

Synopsis: Examines how we experience art, discusses the symbolic and cultural aspects of aesthetic objects, and considers the effect of art from other cultures.

From Library Journal: This reflective, insightful account deals with cross-cultural aesthetic perceptions. Drawing on a wealth of illustrations from Western and non-Western traditions, Maquet analzyes the message and meaning of the visual arts. He concludes that, though the aesthetic experience transcends ethnic boundaries through metamorphoses not dissimilar to meditation, analysis of the cultural context (i.e., anthropology) is the most promising heuristic mechanism for understanding the aesthetic dimension. The intricate connections between the cultural level and the universal and singular levels cannot be ignored, thus "careful observations of our inner life should not be banished from the anthropological realm." An exceptionally thought-provoking, accessible analysis. Winifred Lambrecht, Anthropology Dept., Brown Univ . , Providence,
